1. Best Unique Gift: Dyson Zone WP01 Headphones 


  • Active noise cancellation
  • Good sound quality
  • Pleasant air purification experience


  • Feels bulky
  • Volume is low, say reviewers

A pair of headphones that can purify the air for you? It’s possible, with Dyson’s Zone headphones. The subject of much debate when they were released last year, these are the world’s only active noise-cancelling, air-purifying headphones. Reviewers say the ANC (active noise cancellation) works well, especially when you use it outdoors or in public transport. According to Dyson, eight active noise-cancelling microphones monitor surrounding noise 384,000 times a second, and work to cancel background noise. Sound quality is great, with ultra-low distortion, clear bass, mids and highs, but volume is a little lower than they’re used to, say some reviewers. The air purification technology, as expected from Dyson, is excellent – electrostatic filters capture viruses and 99 per cent of ultrafine particulates, while activated carbon filters remove fumes and odours. It produces a continuous stream of purified air to the nose and mouth as you use the device. Another bonus? Your gift recipient will look like a superhero when wearing it.

Bonus: Buy with zero per cent instalments and pay Dh140.17 for 12 months with select banks.

2. Best Speaker Gift: Bang & Olufsen Beosound Emerge Bookshelf Wi-Fi Speaker 


  • Elegant, premium design
  • Loud, crisp sound
  • Intuitive controls


  • Not durable or waterproof

An elegant gift that seamlessly blends into one’s home décor, Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound Wi-Fi speaker looks like a hardcover book. The speaker has been constructed with premium materials, like oak wood and knitted fabric, to achieve its beautiful design. Despite its ultra-slim form factor, it offers full-range, ultra-wide 180-degree sound. Reviewers say they are surprised by how loud and clear the audio quality is – it’s loud enough to fill a big room. The top of the speaker houses volume and playback controls, while the back features connectivity ports. You can use the brand’s app for graphic EQ adjustment and tune the speaker to your liking. The device supports Google Assistant, and also connects to Spotify, Chromecast and Apple AirPlay 2.

Bonus: Buy with zero per cent instalments and pay Dh314.67 for 12 months with select banks.

Warranty: Amazon offers a one-year extended warranty by Salama Care for Dh227, and two-year extended warranty for Dh323.

3. Best Appliance Gift: Stagg EKG Electric Gooseneck Kettle 


  • Precision gooseneck spout
  • Heats at desired temperature
  • Brew stopwatch
  • Keep warm function


  • Max fill line is misleading, some reviewers say

Know someone who loves their drip coffee? Stagg’s 900ml EKG electric kettle is a beautifully designed appliance – all black, with walnut wood accents – that is sure to win their heart. Its long spout allows users to control the stream of water precisely when they make pour-over coffee. They can set it to their desired temperature, as well, via the sleek LCD display. A built-in brew stopwatch lets them time coffee extraction for the best flavour. Reviewers especially love the temperature hold function, which keeps water at their desired temperature for up to an hour. Some, however, caution that it’s best to fill water much below the maximum fill line (not right at it), otherwise it tends to spurt out, which can be hazardous.

Bonus: Buy with zero per cent instalments and pay Dh74.38 for 12 months with select banks.

Warranty: Amazon offers a one-year extended warranty by Salama Care for Dh52, and two-year extended warranty for Dh73.

4. Best Homeware Kettle Gift: MacKenzie Childs Flower Market White Tea Kettle 

Known for its imaginative, whimsical designs, MacKenzie Childs’ enamel tea kettle is handcrafted to perfection. This Flower Market White style kettle is hand painted, and will look beautiful when your gift recipient both serves it and stores it in their crockery cabinet. The heavy-gauge, hand-glazed steel underbody of this kettle has undergone hand-applied transfer decoration, and is rimmed in bronze stainless steel. The overall effect is classic and cottage chic, so pick this up for a tea lover among your friends and family.

5. Best Perfume Gift: Kurkdjian Maison Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de Parfum 

A fragrance that’s been on everyone’s minds recently, at least on social media, Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Baccarat Rouge 540 is often described as “unforgettable”, by reviewers. Although it needs an acquired taste for its bitter almond note and animalic ambergris accord, the Extrait version of the original scent is rich and intense, giving it a luxurious aura and longer-lasting sillage. The blend is infused with saffron that lends to its slightly metallic amber accords; you'll also find soft cashmere wood that adds a powdery effect, together with multi-faceted notes of jasmine from Egypt. If you’d like to present this gift to someone who attends black-tie events often, this perfume is going to be their trusty companion.

Bonus: Buy with 0% installments and pay Dh74.92 for 12 months with select banks.

A bath mat may sound like a quirky gift idea, but hear us out: this is the crème de la crème of bath mats. Sutera’s stone bath mat went viral on social media last year, for its almost magical ability to dry instantly. It’s made from a natural diatomaceous earth material, which is non-slip and soft under the feet. There’s minimal maintenance involved – it dries in minutes and always looks clean. Over 5,000 reviewers give this 4.2 stars, saying they’re never going back to fabric mats.

7. Best Chocolate Gift: A Gift Inside Signature Ghirardelli Gift Basket
